Tom Waits is on my short list of the great musical minds of my lifetime. Today is his 70th birthday. Post some of your favorites from his considerable catalog. Here's one from a later album:

And a beautiful, spectacular tearjerker from his first:

I heard his music described as beautiful music made from ugly parts, and I think that pretty much sums it up. And it's not just his writing for himself -- people from Joan Baez to Bruce Springsteen have sung his songs, and he's sung Leonard Bernstein to the Ramones.

It's so hard to choose. Really hard. But with both the holiday season and civic pride to help me along, here's Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis.
